Colts Rugby XV 1962-1963

School Rugby Team

Many thanks to Terry Keane who provided this photograph of the Colts Rugby XV from 1962-1963.

The reverse of the photo provided some autographs from the esteemed players.

Terry identified himself (most reassuring) as being third from the right on the back row, and R. Tyrrell on the far right seat . Ken Girkin is easily recognisable.  I can recognise Barry Holton second from the right in the back row, and a youthful Nicol Holladay third from the left seated.

Courtesy of Martin White:

Back row left to right: Owen White, next not sure, then John Bowley, Robert Wilson, Terry Keane, Barry Holton, Martin White.

Middle row from left: not sure, then S MacMillan, Nic Holliday, Ken Ashby, Barry Allfry, not sure, R Tyrell, at front Ken Flower and on the right not sure.

Further contributions would be welcome!

Front left looks a bit like Clive Cant's elder brother (Cant's Menswear, top of Margate High Street, Ed).

    The missing names: second left back row…the only one I do not clearly recall, but looking at the signatures on the back there is a D.Little (Des?), I assume it must be him. Second right front row Roger Atterwill or Attwill? Front right seated Chris Taggart. Chris left the school shortly afterwards, family moved away I assume. S. MacMillan was, of course Stuart Martin MacMillan Pratt – I think that’s right. Why do these things stick in my mind? Surprised Dave Collison didn’t make the team (perhaps he was absent that day) and Dave Smith must have joined thew school a year later. As Tommy remarked (I assume he is the “T” of the previous post, it was sad that John Bowley died whilst at school, if I remember rightly he was drowned on the Norfolk Broads. I remember his funeral at Margate very well…

    The ‘Mr T’ was not Tommy…..it was Adrian T…your predecessor as school captain. It’s good to revive memories from half a century ago.
